The westernmost point of Germany

Einträge anzeigen

The District of Heinsberg is the westernmost district of Germany. Visitors can even get a stamp in their ‘Zipfelpass’ (lit. point passport) in the Borough of Selfkant.

Walks through the old town and exquisite gastro experiences (Wassenberg’s Gourmand Market) are also worthwhile, as well as a visit to the numerous watermills that have been preserved. The mill town of Wegberg even offers its own Mill Route for cyclists and hikers. A ride on the steam-powered museum train and rafting and canoe tours on the River Rur are also popular leisure activities.

The District of Heinsberg’s economy was shaped by coal mining for a long time. In Hückelhoven, ‘Shaft 3’ at the Exhibition Mine and a mountain slag heap with a 400-step stairway to heaven, from which you can enjoy a great view, are reminders of this.

The district of Heinsberg has even more to offer. Discover the entire tourist offer of the Heinsberger Land on the website of Niederrhein Tourismus.
